Masters of armed combat, warriors live and die by their martial skill and the strength of their armor. As a warrior, you will be unparalleled at enduring enemy attacks and drawing their ire from your vulnerable companions. A strong heart and raw toughness will see you through the dangers you face more than anything else, supported by your capacity to strike with great strength and agility when the going gets rough. The life of a warrior is one of triumph through violence.
Backgrounds will increase your starting attributes, and some NPCs may either know you or have special interactions with you based on the background you pick.

|You're the youngest child of a noble family, with all the pampering and prestige that entails — not to mention training in arts of magic or battle to your hearts' content.

Like you, your parents were adventurers, and left early in your life. You're used to living alone — you're quick, quiet, and fleet of foot after years of living in arboreal solitude. Your life as a hunter has given you greater Agility.|
|The life of a soldier in the ruins of the Belharan Empire is hard and brutal, requiring constant physical fitness and training. You've served in conflicts against monsters and barbarians, and now bring your skills and experiences from the frontlines to the frontier. Your rigorous training has given you a bonus to Strength.|
|You're a barbarian, a savage wildling from beyond the borders of civilization. Though your tribe exemplified the warrior's code of honor and bravery, that did not save them from the orcish raiders who wiped them out. Only you survived, forced to seek out a new life beyond your clan's homelands. Your barbarian prowess grants a bonus to Toughness.|
